Advice on changing network management products, trends in the industry, and more...

Level 12

I was answering a set of e-mails today on when's a good time to change network management products, what trends I'm seeing in the industry, and how to evaluate a network management solution and I got to thinking that these are some of the questions that we answered on our recent video segment with Gartner Group. So, if you're interested you can watch the segment at:

www.solarwinds.com/garner_video/
 

No promises on how many times I stutterred or said "uhhh" or "ummm" but in my defense it was hot as heck in that room... Not the geekiest comments I've utterred but definitely some value there.


Flame on...

I get "Oops this page doesn't exist" when I try and open the video link.

Hey Jfrazier‌ - the direct link Webcast: Getting Network Management Ri works, but when you visit that page, it just promotes the download of NPM. I think the actual Gartner video is so outdated at this point so our solarwinds.com team removed it. I'm not sure what the obligations are/were with Gartner; the removal could have been driven by any agreement(s) we have with them. This is just me taking a wild guess, so don't quote me on it!
